Hello all!

I am trying to design a GUI for a desktop application. Would anyone tell me what are the most popular products that can perform the following functions:

Customize Menu Buttons
3-dimensional Graphs
Opaque Windows

I am familiar with Windows Forms somewhat... but I'm just trying to get a list of what all is out there. What do most cutting edge programs use?

The problem im running into is the sheer amount of things out there...take Adobe, for example. if you look on their products page:[^]

you'll see many many different products. and all their sales staff has told me is that I need the most premium package of this or that. Please help me see through the forest!

Any help is much appreciated,

Well WPF will do all of those, if you are prepared to put in the time to learn it.

Other than that, MSCharts[^] can do the graphing part, as can many other control libraries.

Can't help with the other two requirements.
